Since September 2018, the Transition Ecological Gateway team of the Construction Department of the City of Paris has been working on a demonstrator building in eco-construction: La Petite Fabrique d'Ivry-Levassor.
 
This pilot project aims to search, experiment and find solutions to create buildings that have a positive impact on the environment. All the solutions developed within this project will comply with the standards applicable to a second category ERP and will be reproducible.

Card no. 01 from the guide “Demain mon territoire” (Tomorrow my Region), co-published by ADEME and the EcoMaires, is intended for elected officials to help them integrate the environment into their programme thanks to twenty information sheets providing ideas for action and examples of implemented solutions.
 
Mulhouse City, convinced that ecological transition requires the mobilisation of as many people as possible, gives voice to its inhabitants with the creation of the platform “Mulhouse c’est vous” (Mulhouse is you). This website from the Agency for Citizen Participation allows the people of Mulhouse to vote, comment and object to projects proposed by the city. Inhabitants can propose solidary actions thanks to a suggestion box.
 
By being put to the vote, these solidary initiatives can then be examined by the municipal council only if they get the support of 250 members. A 300 000 euro participative budget is allocated by the city to finance projects which are thought up and voted on by its residents. Finally, a place called “Le Carré des Associations” with tailor-made services is made available to citizens to support them in the promotion and development of associative activities.                     
                  
By mobilising its inhabitants, Mulhouse is transforming each of them into stakeholders in the ecological and solidary transition.

Card no. 04 from the guide “Demain mon territoire” (Tomorrow my Region), co-published by ADEME and the EcoMaires, is intended for elected officials to help them integrate the environment into their programme thanks to twenty information sheets providing ideas for action and examples of implemented solutions.
 
To reduce the impacts of the activities directly allocated to the municipalities on climate change, some officials have already implemented action plans to act at the level of public infrastructure and equipment. Such is the case in Guadeloupe, where the urban community of Cap Excellence and the commune of Baie Mahault have adopted a Regional Climate-Air-Energy Plan (RCAEP) to reduce CO2 emissions by 20%.
 
To achieve this, Cap Excellence and Baie Mahault have been committed since 2015 to respecting the rules of the Cap Cit’ergie label which governs their sustainable energy climate policy. Nowadays, the communes have equipped their public buildings with solar panels and solar water heaters.
 
The whole urban lighting system has been revised to work only with LEDs. Moreover, to minimise the energy needs of homes, bioclimatism has been favoured to make the most of the home’s outside environment by using external solar protection, natural ventilation and roof insulation. So municipal stakeholders have become players in the ecological transition and models for their fellow citizens.
